The Acorn is one of the rarest Caddy Spoon designs and in our opinion the finest were made by the Lady silversmith, Elizabeth Morley. As you will see from the images, the spoon bowl is modelled to simulate the shape of an acorn and is engraved with trellis work designs. The shaped handle has a prick dot border and is engraved with a palm design, below a set of contemporary script initials. The Spoon is in excellent crisp condition and is very well marked on the reverse. For a similar example see "Caddy Spoons - An illustrated guide", plate 97, fig d. The spoon illustrated in the book is also by Elizabeth Morley.

Length: 2.75 inches, 6.88cm.
